This document contains data from IDC Canada's <I>IT Advisory Panel (ITAP),</I> which was completed in July 2021. IDC conducted this survey to understand if small, medium-sized, and large business have fast-tracked their plans to implement a fully supported paperless strategy.</P><P>"There have been many reasons why Canadian organizations have experienced a reduction in page volume in the past year, from limited access to home printers when working remotely to new office policies governing social distancing and reducing office touch points. These reactionary changes to new working conditions have kept people from printing; however, in the long-term, the pandemic has underscored the need for new digital workflows that may no longer include the printed page," explained Evan Hardie, research director, Imaging and Future of Work at IDC Canada.</P> IDC Survey Spotlight Tue, 19 Oct 2021 04:00:00 GMT Evan Hardie Edge Spreads its Wings in Europe: How Digital Leaders are Solving Their Edge Challenges <P>This IDC Web Conference features Gabriele Roberti and Andrew Buss — with the contributions from the European Edge Practice team — to give an overview how the market is developing, the key players and ecosystems, and the impact on related markets. </P><P>Edge continues to go from strength to strength — half of European organizations are already looking at edge with some sort of early-stage implementation, whereas 1 in 6 have already reached a more established phase. Interest is high, and so is the need for solutions that distribute resources to accomplish better performance along with increased innovation, security, and compliance. Other emerging technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) are further driving up attention. But enterprises are challenged in managing the complexity of multiple architectures as well as the misalignment of IT, operations, and business when looking at how the technology can be developed over multiple use cases and dealing with a still-maturing value chain.</P><P>Some of the key points discussed in the webcast are:</P><UL><LI>Solutions, drivers, and challenges for edge</LI><LI>How are digital leaders embracing edge? How does edge fit into companies' growth?</LI><LI>Edge use cases and its relationship with other emerging technologies</LI><LI>Edge value chain buildup and the role of service providers: The benefits of compute into communication networks</LI></UL> Web Conference Proceeding: Tech Buyer Tue, 19 Oct 2021 04:00:00 GMT Andrew Buss, Gabriele Roberti Enterprise Workloads Resulting in Broader Adoption of Scale-Out File Storage Architectures <P>This IDC Survey Spotlight highlights adoption of scale-out file storage architectures to accommodate new artificial intelligence-driven workloads. In primary research completed in September 2021, IDC asked enterprise respondents about their evolving use of file- and object-based storage platforms. Most enterprises have workloads that require scale-out (as opposed to scale-up) file storage, and a surprising number also have workloads that require a true parallel (rather than just a distributed) scale-out file system for performance reasons. Discussions with enterprise customers over the last year indicate that more of them are considering deployment of parallel scale-out file systems to accommodate new artificial intelligence-driven workloads they are deploying as part of digital transformation, and this survey validates that a good number of enterprises have these types of workloads. This does not necessarily mean they will be replacing existing file storage products, but they will at least be considering the addition of parallel scale-out file storage (a system type that in the past was primarily deployed in more technical computing environments).</P> IDC Survey Spotlight Tue, 19 Oct 2021 04:00:00 GMT Eric Burgener Leading Edge Infrastructure Hardware Vendors' Product Positioning and Partner Accreditations <P>This IDC Market Presentation offers an overview of how the leading edge infrastructure vendors in Europe are positioning their edge-optimized hardware, how broad their edge portfolios are, and to what extent they have implemented partner accreditations as part of their go-to-market strategies for edge solutions. </P> Market Presentation Tue, 19 Oct 2021 04:00:00 GMT Andrew Buss, Gabriele Roberti
